After several fits and starts with video editing software, I finally finished editing the last run of my previous layout, when I lived on 150th St.

Thought you might enjoy seeing the old layout. It was torn down right after this video and was reincarnated about a year later at my current home.

Nice ride. I liked the track work.

I really enjoyed the video. Envious of your layout space! And the new one's even bigger? Can't wait to see more of it.

I like seeing the building mock-ups. Did you use photocopies of the building pieces, or just sketches, or both?

Photocopies of buildings, plus just the walls leaned up against the backdrop or a box.

One thing I am doing differently on the new layout is ballasting the track before I lay rail, having ballasted track really helps. Also the new layout has about 4x the light per sq ft. I have intentionally done some scenery just to keep the juices going.

Dave,

Very nice video. Well done.

The hand laid track looks so realistic and smooth running. The one area of commercial turnouts is a real contrast in appearance, isnít it?

Are any parts of the previous layout going to be reused?

Ironically, shooting this video is what made me change from ME small spikes to ME Micro spikes.

The only piece that survived intact was 6th Ave Yard. All the rail, switches and switch throw mechanisms were recycled.
